Verizon BroadBand Card – Error Hardware is not functioning

Karl Gechlik Karl Gechlik Profile: Karl Gechlik

My broadband USB card stopped working! I called Verizon and got a new card from their store ASAP – and it was still giving me the same error. So now I know it has to be my computer. I try the card on another system and it works!

Then I take a look at my system. What is new… I installed Conectify to share out my connection with my co-workers. It worked while I was using it but now when I am trying to use my broadband card on the fly it is not working.

I uninstalled conectify and I still had the same error!! I ran a system restore – returning me to a period right before I installed this application. As soon as the system restarted, I was back up and running.

I learned a good lesson today! Never trust your users – even if the user is yourself. Everyone knows that users lie!!
